Each specialty book can be purchased separately, but they are also bundled with the definitive OpenRoads Primer, the starting point for all things OpenRoads. This is the same Primer as in the Essentials Series, and Training Series, just repackaged for visual continuity, so there is no need to obtain this one if you already have one.
• OpenRoads Primer – This foundational material lays down the groundwork for all things OpenRoads in four sections and is a critical component for moving into this new software. The book covers the new Ribbon; the key aspects of MicroStation and their use in the OpenRoads world; the soon to be legendary section on OpenRoads Interaction and the underlying foundation to Rules and Design Intent; as well as a focused section on exactly what a user needs to know about Configuration.
Survey – This volume focuses on OpenRoads Survey and covers the post-processing of field data. The main topics contained in this book are the importing and editing of field data once brought into OpenRoads Survey. Beyond that, it covers the creation of the base drawing and Terrain model. This volume will address each of these topics from basic to advanced and is presented like our earlier InRoads material in the form of hands-on with our sample files with integrated reference material describing the tools and functions being used.
